The Build-It-All Starter Kit is our at-home electronics and circuitry kit. It provides the ideal path for beginners to get inspired about STEM by designing electronics while using real tools, real parts, and real code in an inviting, intuitive, and creative way. It's great for either continuing the explorations that you started in a Circuit Lab class, or for starting your jorney with circuitry if you are outside the geographic area of our programs.

We originally launched the Build-It-All Starter Kit as a Kickstarter camapign in April 2018, and were successfully funded (over 200% funding total!) after just ten days.

The Kit includes:

  • An Arduino-compatible Uno R3 microcontroller board
  • A selection of sensors and small circuitry components
  • Access to Codelab, our online visual programming interface for the Uno board
  • A series of example projects derived from our classroom curriculum
  • Step-by-step video tutorials and creative challenges for each project

Make projects like:

  • Self-Watering Plants
  • The High Five Robot
  • Automatically-Dimming Lights
  • Burglar Alarms
  • Touchless Musical Instruments
  • And More!
